Description: The film consists of the best footage of benthic life generated by the "Monster Camera" project conducted in 1970. In this NSF-sponsored project, Isaacs and his team dropped a bait pail, light source and cine camera on the sea floor at various locations at depths of 200-3700 meters in order to get photographs of life on the sea floor. The film includes a detailed description of the underwater camera system and images of sea floor activity. This film was initially shown to scientists and was later shown to the general public at the SIO Aquarium Museum.

Subject: Bad audio
The video quality is not bad for an old 15mm film. Unfortunately the audio is so bad I could understand hardly anything the narrator said.
